The behavior you describe is all completely normal according to my experience with a BB 7520, and now 7100i in conjunction with a Jabra BT250, and a Motorola.
Per your examples, here are the phone rules as I understand them:
When your earpiece is linked to the phone, and the phone is out of the holser, if you press the earpiece button, it will redial your last call. If it's not linked up to the phone yet, and you press it, it will pair to the phone, but not dial.
If your earpiece is on and paired to the phone (you can see the "paired" <> symbol next to the Bluetooth symbol), and you initiate or receive a call, that call will go to your earpiece no matter what, whether it is in "standby" or "active", and whether you press the earpiece button or not. This relates to your final example also. When you initiated a call from the phone, it was already active on your earpiece, so all you had to do was listen and talk. However, by pressing the earpiece button after the call was already dialed, you ended the call.
It sounds like a case of the hardware working differently with this phone than it did with your previous phone, but from what you described, it's normal. So, if you can get used to it, that's how the 7100i works w/Earpieces. Good luck.
